It is now certain by all means that the Telugu film industry will not move out of Hyderabad and has no plans whatsoever to move out of Telangana.
It was evident from the way the Telugu film stars heaped praised on Telangana government and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao.
Megastar K Chiranjeevi and even senior actor Nandamuri Balakrishna addressed KCR as “mana mukhyamantri” (our chief minister) and Hyderabad as “mana Hyderabad” during the film stars’ programme at the World Telugu Conference.
On Wednesday, Allu Arjun also tweeted appreciating the Telangana government for promoting the Telugu language.
He expressed his happiness on the state government holding the program with such a huge impact and called it a proud moment. He said he was really proud and elated.
In fact, there was no programme of the Telugu film stars originally scheduled for the World Telugu Conference, but the Movie Artistes Association requested the state government to arrange for one, so as to make their contribution for the Telugu language.
And the film stars competed with one another in praising KCR and Telangana.
And there was not a word about Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu or the state in particular. They only said Telugu language as a whole, irrespective of the region, has to be promoted.
Apparently, the Telugu film industry is of the view that there is no sentiment of Andhra as far as films are concerned, notwithstanding the fact that majority in the industry are from Andhra region and during the combined state, they looked down upon the Telangana language and culture.
But now with the Nizam being the gross revenue generating area and there are absolutely no facilities in the neighbouring Andhra for the film industry, the Telugu film stars are pampering KCR and dumping Naidu!
